Paul Powlesland Takes Action Again…..

Another example of when a Council appears to forget that it’s there to serve the best interests and carry out the wishes/instructions of the people who elected them… 



What is this mania for cutting down trees?



We planted four hundred and twenty trees,

hands thrust deep into nurturing earth;

cold-nosed and blinking from the icy draught,

joyous in expectation.


In anguish, I hear

the ripping of bark and heartwood,

letting of xylem and phloem,

wrenched from life,

the magnificent cedar succumbs

to tree surgeon’s blade.


Two hundred years, growing:

In two days of butchery,



Above the screeching machine,

slicing and shredding,

the silent scream of the tree,

whose loss is mourned

by sheltering songbirds and owls -

who cannot wait for our small trees to grow -

and me.
